Mermaid Murmurings

So, we are having this fun thing at work. Nearly all of us are making a stocking (whether we celebrate Christmas or not) and making them reflect our personalities, and then we will display them up front, where customers get to guess who made which stocking! And this is mine.....

She has a body that is three layers of fabric, the skin, and two iridescent lames for her scales. Then I added sequins as more scales, and German gold sticker and paper snowflakes. Her tiara is a zipper, as is her hanger, and her tail is Angelina fibers (of course). A little threadpainting for her hair, and some colored pencils for her face, and voila! A mermaid to hold little treasures!. She was fun!
